"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Rangers - Homemade Cassette Collages II (USA)

Two more very long, strange songs by RANGERS.
Joe Knight is the man behind RANGERS. He's from Dallas, TX, USA, and he's doing some pretty amazing stuff. Joe writes (on Myspace), that he's influenced by STREET VENDORS and SOUVENIERS. I don't know either of those two, so I can't say much about that. What I CAN say, is: THIS MUSIC IS GREAT! - very original, always an adventure to listen to (though it IS indeed quite lofi) and that I find myself listening to RANGER's fantastic, exotic music quite a lot...

RANGERS - Homemade Cassette Collages II
1. Osaka - 24.26
2. Street Smell II - 20.31

I've been listening to the first compilation for a while now and decided it was time to try the sequel. This much I know: Rangers has/have an aesthetic - Rangers always sounds just like Rangers and nobody else. It's a murky, narcotic sound for riding the wild surf of the mind.

Rangers song These Things is like the closing credits to a lost surf film from, maybe 1968. try to grab it-you can't.
